Green Bay Packers... Basketball

Recommended Posts

Packers News just posted this to facebook. I knew the Packers played some charity basketball games in the 80s and 90s, but I had no idea they were doing that all the way back in 1959-60, when this photo is from.

Very cool. There's a color version of one of the 1960s teams, been kicking around a little while.

Edit: here it is, 1963:

They look exactly like what a bunch of guys from 1960 Wisconsin would look like as a basketball team.

The Vikings had a basketball team during at least the 70s to mid 80s.
